Irish food group Dawn Meats has been presented with its ISO 14001 Environmental Management certificates for sites throughout Ireland and the UK. Philip Tallon, group operations manager, who accepted the certificates on behalf of Dawn Meats, comments: “This is a chance for us to take a look at everything we have achieved. The delivery of top class products to our clients, the savings from environmentally sound waste management, our innovative energy management techniques; everything has been based on our hard work and it is worth taking a moment to recognise this.”

Dr John Ryan, director of services at Certification Europe, the accredited certification body that assessed Dawn Meats to ISO 14001 Environmental Management standards, says: “Dawn Meats show continuing dedication to improving their business. These five certificates represent not only a commitment towards excellence but also a commitment to the environment.
